vocation…

‘Each of us is the artist of her own life. The materials we are given to work with, the conditions we work under and what happens to us, are part of the drama of what we shall do with our lives. But materials and conditions and event are not, in themselves, the determinding factors. Whether a woman arrives or does not arrive at her destiny-the place that is peculiarly hers-depends on whether or not she finds the Kingom within and hears the call to wholeness-or holiness, as another might say. The woman who hears that call is chosen. She does not have to scramble for a place in the scheme of things. She knows that there is a place which is hers and that she can live close to the One who will show it to her. Life becomes her vocation.”
